With Apple’s new slew of patents coming out of the pipe, it peaked my interest to search through some of their older patents and post them for my readers to enjoy. Without any further introduction, please enjoy the show.
U.S. Patent No. 7,166,791 for a “Graphical user interface and methods of use thereof in a multimedia player.” This patent looks to describe the interface for one of the early iPods.
U.S. Design Patent No. D493,454 titled, “Computer.” Does anyone remember the eMac?
U.S. Design Patent No. D423,485 titled, “Computer Display Screen With A Computer Generated Menu Design.” This looks to be the always present menu bar at the top of MacOS.
U.S. Design Patent No. D287,967 titled, “Personal Computer Housing.” I know this is an Apple II, but I can’t tell if it is the Apple II C or the Apple II+ (my first computer). Update: This is an Apple II C (Credit belongs to one of our readers, Sean. Thanks!)
Hopefully, this post brought back some warm memories. Leave a comment below to reminisce about a dinosaur Apple you once owned.
